New iPhone to get pressure-sensitive home button

Apple’s upcoming iPhone will reportedly feature a pressure-sensitive home button.

Bloomberg reports that this new button won’t physically click, but will use haptic feedback technology instead. This has the added benefit of reducing the number of mechanical parts, which would in turn lead to a lower failure rate.

It’s also believed that the new home button could be better for preventing water and dust from getting into the innards of the device. The removal of the headphone jack, should this actually happen, will also improve the water-resistant properties of the device.

Bloomberg’s report also details the dual-camera setup. Apparently, each sensor will "capture colour differently" to "produce brighter photos with more detail." These are then combined to produce sharp photos with vivid colours, as shown by the Huawei P9.

Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone in September, possibly as soon as September 7.
